comment access of linux and windows to same share location
My personal experience (heavy Linux user, sometime Windows mainly for MSoffice) with the second option: you need 8G RAM to have it smoothly. But if you have, it's very powerful. On my home machine with 16G ram and 4G given to the Virtualbox Windows 7 VM, the latter runs almost as if it were native.

comment How can I shutdown a RHEL server at 06:45 tomorrow morning?
About closing the ssh session --- you can check (close and enter again, check if the shutdown is still running). Otherwise you'll need sudo nohup shutdown... ---although it shouldn't be needed (the HUP signal will be sent as a normal user, so...)

comment dhcpd does not allow filename option with a colon in it
Is there any NTFS, (v)FAT or similar filesystem somewhere? The colon ":" is a forbidden char for them...

@IonicăBizău --- that is a pseudo-file, do not edit it with vim ever. Get a root shell (with sudo -i) and use the aforementioned commands.
